West Yorkshire Beekeeper takes top title on opening day of Countryside Live

Beekeeper Kath Brown’s three intensive days of making delicate lilies using wax from her colony of British Black Bees paid off after she took the championship prize in the Honey Show.

A retired farmer, Mrs Brown was awarded the prestigious Blue Ribbon Award for the best exhibit in the show at Countryside Live for a display of hand-crafted pink wax lilies.

The grandmother, who has been keeping bees for 35 years and has 33 colonies at her home in Pontefract, West Yorkshire, was delighted with her success.

“It took me about three days to make the lilies, first making the stamens in the middle and getting them just right, then the leaves and the petals,” said Mrs Brown, whose display of wax flowers beat her daughter Carol Cooper, and granddaughter Catherine Cooper into second and third place in the decorative wax product category.

Mrs Brown was also awarded the Yorkshire Herald Cup for the most points in the Honey Show – a title shared with Graham Browster of Dewsbury, and the pair also notched up the same number of points and shared The Yorkshire Post Cup.

Other notable winners included Greg Sharp of Barkston Ash, who was awarded The Horstman Cup for Best Light Honey, and Terry Head of Doncaster who won The Chairman’s Gavel, The Yorkshire Challenge Cup and the award for the Best Cut comb and Frame of Honey.
